Dr. ElMessiry said: “The activation of the smart contracts on the blockchain of Ethereum (ETH) is a powerful endorsement of the technical viability of their project. Adding that he is really pleased with the progress they have achieved so far in making the ODEM Platform a reality.
Activation of the smart contract is the final step in testing interaction between the blockchain of Ethereum (ETH) and IPFS (InterPlanetary Filing System). Smart contract activation accompanies the recent achievement of various significant achievements and milestone on the road of ODEM to full deployment of the Platform early next year.
Successful independent testing and auditing of smart contracts provide evidence of the security and viability of the ODEM Platform – an educational portal that is aimed at helping students to overcome the issues they encounter in getting a great education. Cloud integration testing with the smart contracts of the Mainnet is very important to guarantee the security of the system.
